Westport museum serves as site of movie trailer

A locally-produced movie will tell the story of a Jewish girl fleeing the Gestapo at the beginning of WWII. The filmmakers used the Westport Harris-Kearney House in filming the trailer.

A couple of local filmmakers are using the Westport Harris-Kearney House Museum in a movie project.

Hidden District Studios used the museum to film a preview of Adira, the story of a young Jewish girl living in Europe at the start of WWII who flees from the grasp of the Gestapo and finds herself stranded on an abandoned farm.

“She has to learn to survive with only her faith and basic instincts to keep her alive.  With this fictional story, Hidden District Studios pays tribute to those souls affected by the Holocaust and explores the power that faith and family has in our lives,” the filmmakers say on their website.

Bradley J. Lincoln and Irene Delmonte, a husband and wife team, began Hidden District Studios in 2009. Since then they have worked on numerous short films. Shooting for the movie will begin early in July.

Located at 4000 Baltimore, in Kansas City, MO, the 1855 Harris-Kearney House is the oldest remaining residence in Kansas City.  The house was built by the Harris family in 1855, and is now a museum owned and operated by the Westport Historical Society.
